While Musk may have built a cult-following, his tweets, public comments, and thin skin have done considerable damage and he should be held to account for the irresponsible use of his public influence. The prosecution must establish control and ensure that the jury is not won over by Musk's charisma.
There is a real concern about potential bias within the court's jury in this case, as San Fransisco has been flooded with negative media stories and accounts from politicians about the billionaire. Much like the trial of Elizabeth Holmes, Musk will unjustly start his defense on the back foot.
There is a 40% chance that Musk will be the richest person in the world on December 31st, 2025, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
